9 08 2010

For the last few months I’ve been testing a discretionary trade method on the EURUSD and GBPUSD . Approach relies upon using the previous day’s highs/lows as support/resistance, looking for breakouts of these areas and using the 3min timeframes to establish entries. Nothing complicated but the results have been encouraging enough for me to employ this on a ‘live’ basis.

Blue line at 1.3269 indicates previous day’s low. Entry at 1.3259 (small blue line), stop at 13275 (red line) and 1st target profit at 1.3251 (gold line). 3 contracts opened and 2 contracts closed at 1st TP. Remaining contract is therefore risk free and left open to maximise return.

Update – 1st TP hit and stop moved to 1.3265

Update (10th Aug) – Secondary trade initiated (next post) so position on this trade locked in at stop level of 1.3138, locking in 16 pips on two contracts (at 1st TP) and 121 pips on remaining contract. Sweet.
